    I have been looking at the xcard, I am abit puzzled.

    Do I have to connect my monitor thru the xcard If I only wish to play movies to my TV?

    No..you can just connect your TV to the card..however you will not get anything on screen other than the movie picture..the Xcard does not pass through any Windows desktop..so you'l still need a monitor connected to your PC.
